encryption, which we've talked about. more and more social media is getting the attention of the law enforcement community because they see it being used as a tool not just in communication but a crucial tool in their recruiting efforts. with the fight against isis on the ground well underway abroad, the obama administration is intensifying domestic efforts to counter violent extremism, a surgical strike where the weapon is social media. former fbi investigator bill dailey says social media is a crucial part of the organizations like isis. >> they train people on line. >> reporter: a high level meeting today. loretta lynch, james comey and other members of president obama's national security team industry's help. >> the goal here is to find additional ways to work together to make it harder for terrorists
>> google, apple, facebook and twitter part of the sit-down. most companies have policies directing the removal of violent or terror-related content. security experts say both sides could do more and intercept attacks before they happen. >> probably like to see the technology companies and the government agree on some format of which they can work together on selective cases. how quickly can we respond, how quickly can law enforcement work with them to find out who the perpetrators of potential terrorist acts are. >> encryption is one of the subjects the government wants to bring up in the meetings. experts say if the government and the tech companies are able to come to an agreement on how to use social media to protect the country, it would be an immediate blow to terrorist organizations in the short term. ernie: thank you very much. an important move. joining me right now is peter moreno, a new york security expert.
this is a real battleground as we know. how important is it for american tech companies to get involved fighting terrorism? >> it's extremely important. they are involved, but what the administration is asking is they take it to the next level. there are lots of nooks and crannies where information can be exchanged secretly. they're asking not just to let us look at the cell phone use, but to look at chat rooms or gaming chat rooms, things like that. ernie: it's such an important thing. it's top national security issue right now. it's a war. we know that. and we say why does it take so long for the companies to respond and to react? i know it can be complicated. this is important. >> i think you have to look at it from a business perspective. they have their clients' privacy to protect. and they don't want to appear to be giving this away. they do cooperate perhaps more
this is going to be an extension of what's going on. ernie: given what's happened, do you think they'll be more motivated? >> i hope so. they're families are at stake as well. we all as a nation have to get together regardless of your ideology, regardless of your concerns. it's the age old battle of privacy versus safety of everyone. it goes back to the framers. ernie: that's true. you as a former nypd captain, you also had experience working and using this kind of information. >> absolutely. i was assigned to the transit bureau. a large part of my responsibility was protect the riding public from terrorism. and we would move our sources, our resources, deploy them according to intelligence we got from our counterterrorism bureau, they got it from the fbi and from sources such as -- ernie: and more important with the way the world is. optimistic? you think something will happen given the meeting and more to come? >> i do. i'm confident that calm heads will prevail, intelligent heads
the threat is real. ernie: i hope so. we all know we need it. peter moreno, thank you for being here. other news to tell you about this evening. nypd officers remain on alert this evening following recent attacks on police officers. the latest happened last night in philadelphia. cops say 30-year-old edward archer ambushed officer jesse hartnett while sitting in his patrol car shooting at him a dozen times. despite being wounded, he helped to catch archer, who told police he was acting in the name of islam. islam. >> he stated he pledges his allegiance to the islamic state. he follows allah and that is the the reason he was called upon to do this. ernie: the officer was wounded in the arm and will be okay. this follows an attack on a police station in paris, a knife-wielding suspect was killed after lunging at officers while carrying a picture of the isis flag. a police sergeant present during the arrest of eric garner
and charged with failure to supervise. officials say the sergeant was one of the supervising officers when garner died after being put in an apparent chokehold on staten island in 2014. >> more subway problems today as a stalled train caused major delays on the 6 line. it happened the same day governor cuomo announced a major improvement plan for the entire city hoping to bring it into the 21st century. it includes replacing metro cards with a new digital system, while expanding wi-fi and cell service to all subway stations. >> i want to listen to my music. i want to make a telephone call, be connected to wi-fi. i've come to expect that. ernie: sounds pretty good. the plan aims to speed up repairs and reconstruction by giving more access to time to contractors. that's what's happening in the news right now. nick is here. i heard you talking about that roller coaster ride. warm, cold.
